  • The Necronomicon or Kitab al Azif was created by H. P. Lovecraft for his "Cthulhu Mythos". A sendup to the real-life "black books", the tome has in turn inspired many other eldritch tomes in fiction.
  • In Lovecraft's stories, the book is just a mundane, rather rare medieval text. Instead, it's what it reveals about Humanity's place in the universe that drives the reader mad, not some inherent magical quality of the book itself.
  • The "powerful evil beings" referred to in the description are the Old Ones (Great Old Ones, Outer Gods, and Elder Things, among others), alien deities who can bend reality to their whim and cause humans to go insane. One such being is Cthulhu, which got its name switched with Malachi in English localizations of Castlevania titles.
  • The Necronomicon book appears in both Castlevania (N64) and Castlevania: Legacy of Darkness as the main menu of the game.
